Seven-Year Battle Proves Victorious with $75,000 in Disability Back Benefits

I was a 37-year-old bank employee, but I injured my back and could not work anymore. I ended up going through three back operations and failed to get any relief. I am still in terrible back pain and cannot even drive a car. I had a lawyer but he lost my case in front of the judge, so I contacted Jerry Lutkenhaus. He did my appeal to the Appeals Council and they sent it back to the judge for a new hearing. He denied my case again because he was the toughest judge in Richmond, VA and never awarded a disability case to someone as young as me. Lutkenhaus appealed again and this time the Appeals Council reversed the bad judge and gave me a new hearing once again. Finally, we got a fair judge. I had had another operation. Lutkenhaus and his team fought for me for over 7 years and got me $75,000.00 of back benefits.
